Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae


One who cultivates the heart’s natural love obtains the guidance of a Guru, and starts his Sadana (Path of spiritual discipline). He becomes a pravartaka, an initiate.

Man, when endowed with the heavenly gift of pure love, naturally becomes disposed to avoid the company of what is Asath and to keep the company of what has been described as Sath.”

    – The Revelation- Sutra6. The Holy Science,

    – Swami Sri Yukteswar Giri (1855-1936 – Disciple of Sri Lahari Mahasaya and Guruji of Sri Yogananda Paramahansa)

By affectionately keeping the company Sath he may be fortunate enough to please one whom may kindly stand to him as his SathGuru or Spiritual Preceptor. By keeping his preceptor’s God-like company there grows an inclination, Pravritti, in the disciple’s heart to save himself from the creation of darkness, Maya, and he becomes Pravartaka, an initiate in the practices of Yama and Niryama, the ascetic forbearances and observances necessary to obtain salvation.

Self-Realization:

God makes the law of karma and if God cannot set aside the law, then the law is greater than God. This cannot be. Generally God does not interfere. He allows the karma to work out. But He may in special case go beyond His law and by His grace free the soul from the bondage of karma. God’s grace comes without deserving it. We cannot get grace by virtue of our so-called merit. Worst sinners have received grace and become pure and glories.

Without initiation, all actions and rituals are fruitless. Without initiation, spiritual perfection cannot be attained. The Guru transmits His own innerself, His Divine Shakthi (Universal Energy or Cosmic Energy or Kundalini Shakthi), and His message directly into the disciple. Only a Guru (Sathpurushas or SathGuru) who has been empowered by the blessings of the Supreme Power can awaken the Kundalini permanently.

Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae


There might be saints who are content to achieve realization for them and will neither move with society nor move their little finger for the benefit of others. Sathpurushas were certainly not one of that Self-centred kind. They loved service and help up Paropakara or service to others as a noble ideal to live up to.

Those that hear the praise of a Sathpurusha, their papa (sins) are washed away and punya (the fruit of good deeds) replaces papa to that extent. In course of time the Brahma-Shakthi (The Divine Energy or Cosmic Energy or Kundalini Shakthi) begins to infiltrate into them also. Moreover, as the people are sinful and getting more and more sinful, they are not qualified to experience the Supernatural feats and miracles.

“Love rules the court, the camp, the grove,

The men below and saints above;

For love is heaven and heaven is love.”

– Swami Sri Yukteshwar

This above stanza 2 from the third canto of “The Lay of the Last Minstrel, by Sir Walter Scott. “Love is God,” not merely as the noblest sentiment of a poet but as an aphorism of Eternal Truth.

To whatever religious creed a man may belong,

and whatever may be his position in society,

if he properly cultivates this ruling principle

naturally implanted in his heart,

he is sure to be on the right path

to save himself from wandering in this creation of Darkness, Maya.

In the words of illumined sage, Shankaracharya:

“Life is always unsafe and unstable, like a drop of water on a lotus leaf. The company of a divine personage, even for a moment, can save and redeem us.”

Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae

Disciple:

Would you briefly describe Kundalini Yoga?

Master:

Kundalini Yoga can not be described briefly because it is such a grand and extensive yoga.

Kundalini Yoga is inspired and directed by Chiti, the same Cosmic Energy that sustains and directs the order of the Whole Universe. This energy moves in a channel at the Central Core of this complex Human Body. It has two aspects: inner and outer. The outer aspects sustain the order of one’s mundane life. The inner aspect lies dormant, but when it awakens it sustains and directs the process of MAHA Yoga, the great yoga. Kundalini Yoga is a totally independent autonomous yoga and completes itself fully without the help of any other yoga. It is a Self – existent and a self-propelled Yoga.

The Kundalini stabilizes and controls all the seventy-two thousand subtle nerves of the human body. When it awakens by the grace of the Guru, it purifies the whole nervous system and makes the body radiant.

It dispels all diseases, purifies all the body centres, and makes itself an abode of divine peace within the heart. All the senses are refined, cleansed, and strengthened. As this process culminates, the Kundalini reaches the Sahasrara, revealing a Divine Brilliance. Sparkling in the middle of this brilliance in the Cerebral Centre is a dazzling BLUE DOT, which the Kundalini enables one to see. Not only that, but by means of this Blue Dot, or Neela Bindhu, a yogi is shown the subtle worlds, all the Gods and Goddesses, and all that can not ordinarily be perceived by the physical senses.

As this process continues, Samadhi occurs spontaneously. The Jiva, the individual soul, is lifted above pleasure and pain. After establishing the aspirant in Supreme Bliss, the Kundalini becomes tranquil.

This Kundalini is the Para Shakthi (Universal Energy) of Para Shiva (Lord of Universe), the transcendent energy of the Supreme, auspicious principle.

Externally it inspires the creation of the world; internally, it inspires the yogic process. By means of the independent, self-sustaining Kundalini, Maha Yoga unfolds automatically. This yoga can also be called Siddha Yoga, the yoga of perfect masters. It is the synthesis of the four Yogas – Hatha Yoga, Raja Yoga, Mantra Yoga, and Laya Yoga-and it is therefore called Maha yoga, the great yoga. It can also be called Chief Yoga. Chiti is the primordial consciousness that is the source and essence of the world in answering your question about Kundalini Yoga; one could fill an entire book. It is a vast subject.

Disciple:

As a Spiritual Leader do you have the power to heal the sick?

Master:

Siddha Gurus can awaken the inner Shakthi (Sheathe) or Divine Energy (Universal Energy or Cosmic Energy) through their touch. When the inner energy is awakened, diseases are cured automatically.

If you want to enter the temple of God within your own being, you have to leave all dogmas and rituals outside.”
